The government on Tuesday decided to allow export of raw hide to ensure fair price.

‘Business people’s cooperation sought for buying and selling of raw hide at the prices fixed by the commerce ministry,’ said a handout.

It is being noticed that the hide of the sacrificial animals are not being sold at the prices fixed by the ministry, said the handout.

Business people involved in tannery industry have been urged to discharge their responsibilities in this connection.

Besides, the business people as well as the local administration have also been requested to maintain quality of the raw hide for its preservation after processing, said the handout.  

In this regard, cooperation of divisional commissioners, deputy commissioners and upazila nirbahi officers have been sought from the ministry.
